Revision of Library Policies

The preceding statements of the Hepburn Library of Lisbon’s policies shall be subject to review and revised as necessary by the Board of Trustees.  Comprehensive or individual policies will be reviewed or added as needed. Registered patrons and other users of the Hepburn Library of Lisbon will be bound by any and all revisions and additions to library policies.

No revision should be undertaken while a formal challenge to a library resource is occurring. It is important to follow the current governing board-approved policy and process to maintain good faith with the community, complainants, and supporters. Revisions should occur after the final decision on the questioned material has been made. When a challenge has been resolved, those involved should reflect on the reconsideration experience and use new knowledge to revamp the current policy.
